The Forrester Wave™: Streaming Analytics, Q3 2017: Gathr named a Strong Performer

“Impetus has the opportunity to make StreamAnalytix (now known as Gathr) the de facto tooling standard for Spark and future streaming engines”- States the report.

Forrester has positioned Gathr as a strong performer among 13 most significant streaming analytics providers in The Forrester Wave™: Streaming Analytics, Q3 2017; one of the few, and perhaps the most comprehensively evaluated market insight reports focussed on streaming analytics today.

Gathr is a platform that makes creating real-time stream processing and machine learning applications on Apache Spark extremely easy. It is aimed at enterprises looking for a single visual platform that leverages popular open source, big data platforms for streaming ETL and advanced analytics, which is easy to use for both business and technical users.

What also shines about Gathr solution is that it includes enterprise-grade visual tooling for both development and deployment of streaming applications.
